Yacht Design

At Transcending Design, our client’s desires are translated into the best possible design solution for their individual requirements, whether their yacht is for private use, charter or resale. Our expertise allow us to work within the classification societies’ requirements in executing the design, whether ABS, MCA, Lloyd’s or other societies’ standards.

Transcending Design offers all phases of design services for completely custom yacht interiors as well as for semi-production/semi-custom yacht interiors. We deliver personalized yacht interiors by combining the owner's lifestyle, functionality of each space, technology desired as well as tailored furniture and fabric styles. Our clients are yacht owners and yacht builders and our aim is always your total satisfaction.

Crucial to articulating the style of a design concept, clients have the opportunity to view their project in 3-D color drawings allowing them to visualize the design concepts and finished interiors. This option provides the ability to make modifications to even the smallest design choice prior to the start of work.

One of the first elements in creating the desired ambiance reflecting the client’s taste is the creation of the exact color palette.

Space Planning plays a critical role in how a space is perceived and used. Space planning is all about the experience one has within the space. It’s a combination of form and function.

Architectural detailing brings depth, character and unique design to interiors whether contemporary or traditional. Transcending Design pays special attention to floor, wall and ceiling finishes which provide an important dimension to any space. Fabric selection combines color, pattern and texture further setting the mood of the space.

An essential element to any design is the incorporation of state-of-the-art electronics into stylish entertainments systems.

To complete the design, Transcending Design’s professionals utilize many resources and relationships to obtain the perfect accoutrements, whether art, antiques, collectibles, plants, pillows or other cherished items.

Transcending Design caters to the discriminating yacht owner. Our goal is to keep our clients boating safely, comfortably and most importantly in style.
